  •  We need to invest a lot of (15+ / 0-)

    time and energy in figuring out how to bring about rapid, effective change.  One mode might be through think tanks dedicated to coming up with strategies for everything from education to getting policies passed.  That has worked well for the Neocons.  Let's make it work for us.

    We need to pay attention to how the GOP has been building political power.  They've gone in at local levels, packing local governments & school boards.  They are way ahead of us in affecting the education of our youth.

    W need to work out ways to affect whole communities.  For instance, developing and promoting a model of neighborhood carpooling for groceries and other errands, so that becomes as common as carpooling to work.

    We should learn from other movements, past and present: e.g., organize and train groups to do teach-ins, and guerrilla performance art followed by discussion and education.  Produce educational flyers, and small, local movement newspapers, etc.  

    The GOP figured out that if you repeat a lie often enough, people start to believe it.  We need to apply that same principle to the truth.  

    Pe'Sla isn't safe until the loan is paid off. The Rosebud Sioux Tribe could use some help with that.
